I first travelled to Costa Rica to escape, for just a moment, the hectic life and pressures of owning a business and running a family....in the States. I had absolutely no intention of purchasing a home in Costa Rica. My second day here, I met a realtor who said 'just come around with me for fun and look at a few condos and homes.' That day I met person after person who just loved it here for the simplicity, peace and beauty. At the end of the day just before sunset my friend said 'let me show you my favorite home I have ever seen.....just for fun.' I stepped into Villa La Joya Bella and saw the vastness of the Pacific ocean and the rainforest through every window and I was overcome by an overwhelmingly spiritual feeling of peace and joy and completeness. In that moment and from every moment on I have felt like I belong here...Villa La Joya Bella is more than a house or a rental property...It is a home...a special jewel.
I used to travel to 'escape from life' but it is here that I find life and breath and peace. I believe in simple things like the connectedness of the universe and that sharing what is special to us transcends boundaries and creates limitless possibilities. I love swimming in the infinity pool while looking at the pacific ocean and the rainforest at the same time...I love sitting on on of the 4 the loggias at sunset and sunrise and hearing the howler monkeys in the forest and seeing the tropical birds dance around the trees...The warm mist rising from the rainforest and smell of mangos growing in the trees in the front yard...Zip lining, ATVing on the beach, sunset cruises, surfing, and eating Mahi Mahi and Tuna that we just caught deep sea fishing....These are the things I want to share with those who come.
Priceless views of Pacific and Rainforest.

My husband and I spent a week at Villa la jolla bella and had such a wonderful time we didn't want to leave. The owners made renting their home very easy and the property managers gave us all of the information we needed to make the perfect vacation. This amazing home is in the rainforest overlooking the pacific ocean with a gorgeous infinity pool and beautiful views. Everyone should get to see this home:)
What a spectacular week!!! La Joya Bella was perfectly set up for a week long girls trip. We enjoyed all of the amenities the house has to offer. The kitchen is very well equipped for preparing breakfast, lunch and dinner, and there is a grill out by the pool. We actually never ate out. We enjoyed going to the local grocery so we could prepare our meals and enjoy the fabulous views.
We enjoyed the pool for a few days during the week and even had a parakeet that decided to hang with us all day.
Make sure if you want to plan an excursion while you are visiting that you contact Tico Tours Guanacaste.
We just returned from 7 wonderful days at La Joya Bella. Everything about the house was fantastic. It had four separate en suites, each with a great view and it was the perfect size for our group of six people, allowing each couple privacy. The best feature is the pool, in fact it was so great we spent three days just enjoying the pool and the view. Most evenings were spent watching the spectacular sunsets from the pool.
The interior is comfortable and well equipped. I fell in love with the bedroom doors - carved features identifying each room. There is a lovely courtyard with an outdoor shower and water feature.
I can not say enough about how wonderful the property management company was during our stay. They helped to arrange a private chef for a delicious birthday dinner, two massage therapists for a relaxing girls day, the tour group and went above & beyond to help us when we lost the keys to the rental car.
Overall this was one of the best vacations I have ever had!!!
The house was beautiful! The pool was the absolute best. Being in Costa Rica we did not get used to the bugs and scorpions. Just be careful, in the closets in our shoes we found small scorpions. The house was very comfortable and we loved that all of the bedrooms were on different levels. It would be a great place to stay for couples. The house is very clean and all of the bedrooms are beautiful. We did not want to leave the pool. The kitchen could use a little updating. The microwave does not have a handle, it has a decorative knob. On the stove you cannot tell how to turn the stove top on because the paint has worn off. We had problems with air conditioning, but they tried to fix it right away. The management group was always available and super helpful! The monkeys knocked out the power, which they did fix right away. This is Costa Rica, so these things are understandable. Every time we went on an adventure we could not wait to get back to the pool. We used the outdoor space a lot and we used the bbq which was awesome! The management group recommended places to buy fresh seafood and meat. Ricos for the meat was great, he makes these sausages that were a huge hit. It was a great place to stay for our large family!
During our recent 10 day stay at La Joya Bella, our group (consisting of 4 couples) thoroughly enjoyed everything this well appointed luxury residence had to offer. Each evening we marvelled at the amazing sunset view from the pool then played games in the evening in the comfortable outdoor living area. The girls enjoyed the mornings sipping their coffee, watching the birds and the local howler monkey family from the patio while the guys played tennis on the local court. For the most part, we "ate in", preparing our meals in the well appointed kitchen and grilling on the barbecue. The four master suites were very roomy and comfortable, and generally the entire residence was tastefully and comfortablly decorated.
Lisa and Wes were accommodating with every request. We noted that we were short on wine glasses and required a fresh propane cylinder for the barbecue. They had our order filled for pick-up by the next morning, "No Problema". Our arrival was early in the morning and they greeted us warmly, allowing us to check in a couple of hours early. When our return flight was delayed (by 10 hours), they easily accommodated our request to stay a little past the standard checkout time.
We had a few minor concerns: the wine fridge didn't work; the shower in two of the bedrooms was tricky to adjust (often cold); the walkway and stairway to the Casita suite was unlit and potentially hazardous in the dark; there were very few "provisions" in the way of basic spices and kitchen consumables to get us started when we arrived. We ended up purchasing the items we needed and left them behind.....hopefully for the next vacation renter.
Save these few exceptions, La Joya Bella was spectacular! Of the many VRBO residences we've experienced throughout North America over the last 8 years, this one ranks at the very top! Awesome!
Our family of eight, that included two grandchildren aged 3 and 5, stayed for nine days in January, at the beautiful La Joya Bella. The highlight was the pool with the fantastic view of the Pacific in the background. The bedrooms were all very comfortable and spacious.....and clean. The kitchen was stocked with most things needed to prepare meals, which we did a lot.
It is located away from town, but that suited us fine. Family members ventured to several different beaches, which were only 15-30 minutes away.
The owner was responsive to any questions we had pre-trip. Since two of our sons are chefs, we wanted to know about fresh fish and carnicerias. He pointed us to Papagayo Seafood in Coco, where we purchased fresh snapper on two occasions. He also mentioned the San Martin Carniceria near the airport, but we ended up finding Rico Nico Carniceria next to the Luperon in Playa Hermosa. Recommend both places for meat or seafood for preparing at the villa.
We ate out in Playa Hermosa at Ginger Restaurant and La Casita del Marisco. Both were good.
We took a Palo Verde Jungle Tour through Tico Tours and had a great time. It was suitable for the little kids, and we all enjoyed it. We saw all types of wildlife and birds, as well as a monkey fight! Our tour guide Marco was the best. It includes a stop for lunch as well as demonstrations of sugar cane processing. The grand kids also got to make tortillas. Highly recommend Tico Tours.
The property managers were equally responsive. We had a couple of minor issues with the house that were dealt with quickly and efficiently. One was with the pool, but the pool guy came immediately and was thorough, efficient, and friendly.
I would recommend La Joya Bella to anyone wanting a relaxing villa with a beautiful view.
Six of us came to celebrate a milestone birthday – could not have picked a better place to celebrate. You will walk in, drop your luggage and feel like the booking.com commercial when you see the view. The view from the infinity pool to the Pacific is extraordinary throughout the day to the sunset and the stars are spectacular.
Property managers are responsive and helpful

Great neighborhood on top of the hill – several of us worked out – the hills are killers

On our first day, we had an ant invasion – they covered the outdoor kitchen, walls and area around the pool – only happened the one day
Scorpions in a couple of the bedrooms and other areas – check your clothes and shoes
Couple of toilet issues - downstairs bedroom smelled most of the week due to the issue
There are no bath tubs, but the walk in rain showers were great
The AC really does not cool the bedrooms (they are set to 24 C). We are from Florida, so use to the heat and the ceiling fans helped
TV was not available for a few days and then when it was installed, the dish and Apple TV were not working, but we watched some DVDs
We had a great time, laughed a LOT and felt like it was an awesome adventure!! I have several friends that have asked about the house because they saw how beautiful it is and the fun times we had. So pack your swimsuit and flip flops and enjoy!!
